Having been recommended to Moya, expectation was perhaps too high. The cocktails are very good and reasonably priced. The food was different. was served by delightfully helpful and polite staff. But there just was not that wahoo factor. My partner likened it to school dinners. A little unfair but you will understand when you visit. What I did like was... More

This is a breath of fresh air. The food was fabulous (I had the pork shank, my partner had the duck) and both were beautifully presented and tasted very, very good. The appetizers (especially the toast!) were also delicious. Portion sizes are generous. The staff is polite and knowledgeable. There are vegetarian options on the menu, but I would say... More

If you visit this restaurant try the Goulash with dumplings! It's lovely and I'd recommend the Czech zlaty beer too, service was great! And reasonably priced! Definitely worth a visit if you're in Oxford.

We came and had really tasty mocktails. We both had the devils toast to start which was absolutely delicious! I then had the beef goulash and my boyfriend had the pork goulash which were both really really good. Great service and a lovely restaurant/atmosphere. We will be back!

It was a Friday night, we hadn't booked (always book if you can) but the staff kindly fitted us in. We were not disappointed, it was the second time visiting this restaurant. The food was excellent, and allergies are taken seriously. The choice was very good and the service was excellent. Very happy and satisfying experience. Thanks to all the... More

Food was great and so was the service. Cute little restaurant that was recommended to us by an Eastern European friend and it did not disappoint!

An unpretentious little restaurant serving freshly cooked food. I had an exquisite sea bass. My husband who is veggie was thrilled to have choice and very pleased with his main course. Service was good and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

We spent a pleasant evening at Moya. Staff was lovely and attentive. I was particularly impressed by the beautiful fresh roses on the table, which is a real plus in my eyes. The food was presented nicely. I was, however, a little taken aback that I wasn't able to order their mushroom dumplings as a starter (since I didn't like... More

A friend from Eastern Europe suggested going to this place for his birthday having rated it before. When he called to ask if he could add two more people to the table, the owner refused and was quite unpleasant about it. So the two extra friends went home. Later, the owner called to say yes it was fine but it... More

moya_oxford, Owner at Moya, responded to this review

In fact your friend booked a table for Saturday for 6 people, so he wanted to add 4 last minute guests in all. We were fully booked before we opened and he rang after opening. He had seemed unsure of numbers so, just in case, I had kept a table free, especially for you, and joined it to yours. When... More
